careful what you wish for

As I was putting groceries away, I heard a big boom in the other room. I came running in to see what had happened. I found the playstation and the tivo behind the tv. I asked him what had happened.

"I don't know, I was just sitting in this chair right next to it and it fell."

"Ok, yeah right. Tell me what really happened."

"promise you wont be mad?"

"If you tell the truth, I won't be mad."

"I was climbing up there and my belly knocked it over."

So yeah, the playstation tried to honor my previous request. It did not survive the fall. I was wondering if my request had something to do with this and I thought crap these machines are expensive. (And I don't mind a good game of quitar hero)

Not to worry, Berk quickly remedied the problem. He sent out a mass text to all friends asking for a used playstation to buy for cheap. Our friend responded by giving us his old playstation2 for FREE. That's my awesome husband for ya, very resourceful.

I am relieved that this incident didn't cost us anymore money, but I was hoping for a little more time before the thing was replaced.

Unbelievable story! Do you think our thoughts are really that powerful?
